This year’s Apple MacBook Air swings in with lots of upgraded features. The 2018 MacBook Air faced a lot of criticism and many compromises. However, Apple’s MacBook Air 2020 is Apple’s lightest and thinnest laptop ever made. Apart from getting a double storage space than it’s predecessor, it also brings the latest 10th Generation Intel-core processors, a new comfortable keyboard, and finally, getting a decent performance rate, giving you the best value for your investment.
All Round Feature: Apple’s MacBook Air 2020 although weighs less than other laptops, but also comes with Apple’s most decent MacBook design. With dimensions of 11.97×8.36×0.63-inch, the 2020 model is slightly heavier than previous models, the 2020 MacBook Air weighs 2.8pounds, while the 2019 version weighs slightly 2.75 pounds.
When it comes to ports slots, the MacBook Air 2020 comes with 2 thunderbolts 3 (USB-C) ports and one audio jack. That’s the same with the 2019 model in case you’re looking for a laptop with many ports. However, the MacBook Air 2020 Thunderbolts 3 ports work at speed of 40GP/S, this allows you to connect the same compatible devices and can transmit up to 6K virtual footage.
Holding the Apple’s latest MacBook is the best feeling you’ll ever desire from any laptop. The impression and astonishing lightweight is very superb but doesn’t reach the levels of Acer Swift 7, or LG Gram in terms of lightweight designs. However, the MacBook Air 2020 is very easy and portable to carry around with you. It can comfortably be sling into your bag. The laptop’s finishing is adorned with the same selection of gold, silver, and space gray colors as other MacBook laptops.
Although lots of changes don’t come up on the outer parts of the laptop, a lot of changes take place in the internal section. The 2020’s model replaced keyboard, features a redesigned scissors mechanism, targeted at restructuring the liabilities challenges other MacBook laptops face. The upgraded keyboard offers a new 1mm per keystroke travel, offering a fast response rate when typing. Besides the keyboard exists a Touch ID fingerprint sensor scanner for identification login and online payment with ApplePay.
Screen feature-nothing much has changed from last year’s model. The MacBook Air 2020 model swings into action with a 13.3-inch screen display, alongside LED backlighting, IPS smart technology, and a screen resolution of 2,560×1,600. Meanwhile, playing games or watching movies with the MacBook Air’s 13.3-inch screen would be your primary reason for buying this laptop. Among many features include a year free Apple TV+ subscriptions with added HDR/4K contents.
The battery aspect of this laptop is something worth commendable. The 11 hours battery life gives you a lot of back-ups when going for works, or using it where there’s low power supply. When the laptop is on standby, you barely see any battery drop – this is one of the best aspects of MacBook computers compared to Windows 10 laptops.
